All4Birth provides information to optimise wellbeing throughout your childbirth journey
What is All4Birth?
All4birth is an online, freely available resource for sharing of information & resources related to childbirth and maternity care.
All4Birth is co-created by a global community of birth practitioners and women and families. The focus is on normal physiological childbirth related to preconception, pregnancy, parturition (birth) postnatal care and parenting.
Our resources include high-level factsheet articles and freeflow blog articles which provide links to publications, research, reports, websites, media and films, guidelines, toolkits and consensus papers.
The objectives of All4Birth are to gather resources into one, accessible space, to increase awareness of and knowledge relating to normal physiological childbirth, to transfer and share knowledge between locations, individuals, and countries, and to maximise potential for optimal outcomes for mothers and babies.
The resource is for mothers, partners, families, maternity care worker childbirth activists, childbirth educators and anyone interested in normal, physiological childbirth.
The Editorial Board are an expert group made up of obstetricians, midwives, researchers, sociologists, journalists and academics (see Editorial Board).
The project lead Hannah Tizard will oversee the development of All4Birth coordinating the activity, including maintaining and updating information.
Resources for the repository will be sourced via social media, literature searches, relevant established e-lists and via contacts. The invited Editorial Board will help to source items, and assist in quality controlling the resources added to the articles and birth repository. Resources will be accessed via links to the original source.
